Incredible Root Bridges of Cherrapunji

The real examples of living architecture can be seen in Cherrapunji, India which is also the wettest place on Earth. The bridges look like as if they are a set for the movie Lord of the Rings but they are very much alive and made from roots of Ficus Elastica rubber tree. The tree produces a powerful secondary root which can perch above ground, along rocks and riverbanks.
